Using Meetup

Meetup is used to manage Club activities (events). Using Meetup will keep you up to date about new events, and allow you to nominate for an event online. Never used Meetup before? Don’t worry, we have made some step-by-step guides to help you get started.

Meetup for Members

STEP 1: You can use Meetup on a computer (via the Meetup website) or an a smartphone (with the Meetup app).  Once you have decided how you will access Meetup, use the appropriate step-by-step guide to set up a Meetup profile and join the Club’s private Meetup group:

STEP 2: Once your request to join our Meetup group has been approved by one of the Club’s Meetup organizers, use the appropriate step-by-step guide to learn how to:

    • Nominate for an event
    • Cancel if you can no longer go
    • Bring a guest (if the leader has allowed this)
    • Receive important event updates (like changes to start time or cancellation due to weather)
    • Modify your profile settings so that other members of the group can contact you using Meetup messaging

Important: The Club will never provide your contact details to anyone, including other members, without your permission. Allowing other members to message you in Meetup can be useful (for example to arrange car pooling) while protecting your privacy. 

STEP 3: The Club’s Meetup group is private and only members of the group can see your profile name. However, some club members are in other Meetup groups that are public, and for privacy reasons prefer not to use their full name in their Meetup profile. If this applies to you, the following step-by-step guide will show you how to make your full name visible only to members of the Club’s private Meetup group.

Important: We need your full name for insurance purposes, and as a courtesy to our leaders who like to know who is coming on their activity. If you don’t provide your full name a leader may not accept your nomination for their activity.

STEP 4: We have created the following memory jogger of Meetup Do’s and Don’ts. If you are new to using Meetup, please review this document each time you nominate for an event, until you become familiar with using it:

Meetup for Leaders (Event Organizers)
